Article 81

Voting at the polling session

When the voter has received the ballot paper, the voter takes it into the polling booth, where the voter is permitted to stay alone, and the voter then brings it to the table that is there. The table shall be outfitted with no less than two ordinary dark graphite pencils; these are provided by the electoral commission, which takes care that they are well sharpened at all times.

There must also be a card that is of the same size as a ballot paper with raised list-letters-of-the-alphabet and Braille lettering, with a window in front of each letter and a pocket on the reverse so that blind people can make a cross through the window in front of the list for which they are voting, thus casting their vote in private and without assistance.
